One of the many lifestyle changes that occurred with the pandemic was a pause of in-person gatherings and celebrations. As we’re all coming out of what has certainly been a rough year, there is no better time to get excited to look amazing at a summer wedding! Whether you’re a little rusty at putting yourself together or you’re just not sure what to wear given the formality of the affair, we’ve got your back!
Formal Summer Wedding Attire
Here are some options when the party is formal and you need the duds to match. Consider a long dress, but because it’s summer, keep colors and materials light. Both of these in pink hues fit the bill.
Summer is also a great season to wear a print. So, if you’re comfortable, a fun floral in floor-length chiffon is a great option. Add strappy metallic heels and fun earrings (these from Bauble Bar come as a set!) and you’re good to go.
For the men, a seersucker suit is the perfect summertime outfit. This Boss suit from Nordstrom has a contemporary slim fit.
Cocktail Chic Summer Wedding Looks
Say the wedding you’re going to isn’t quite black tie but not laid back backyard level either. Somewhere in the middle are the celebrations (and the fashion to go with it) just perfect for a cocktail party. These looks are stunning and will keep you feeling equally fashionable and appropriate. This one-shoulder dress with floral print is so chic. Pair it with Stuart Weitzman killer heels and you’ll be good to go.
If prints are not for you, how about a monochromatic dress in a happy shade of teal? For those that are more comfortable in a darker shade, midnight blue works perfectly. With a hem that doesn’t hit the floor and an interesting neckline, you’ll be dressed with just the right amount of formality and look amazing at a summer wedding. This off-the-shoulder dress by Lulu’s has a neckline just asking for a feminine necklace like this one with butterflies from Jennifer Miller Jewelry. Heart earrings add an extra sweet touch.
We didn’t forget the men here either. A sports jacket in a linen blend is perfect for a summer wedding, and the light blue hue keeps him looking fresh. Paired with tan or navy slacks and he’ll look handsome and comfortable, which is always appropriate no matter the type of wedding you’re attending.
Look Amazing at a Summer Wedding that’s Casual
Just because a wedding isn’t formal doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have a look that is pulled together. And with the options out there it can still be beautiful too. We love these easy, breezy dresses in floral prints that are perfect for a summer garden party or any low-key celebration. We’ve got options in varying lengths and fabrics, but all give off a sophisticated vibe that is seasonally appropriate. The twists and pleats on the Shoshanna dress are so much fun! We love the high-low hem on a feminine dress from Lulu’s, and the maxi dress by Charo Ruiz Ibiza looks equally comfy and chic.
